In Notre Dame hoax, too many people glossed over that.
I believe T'eo is involved in this hoax, but he's not the first athlete to choose the spotlight over the less-interesting truth. People were deceived yet nobody was ultimately harmed, so let the young man learn from his mistake and move on.
I think he was involved in the Hoax also. If he was not and did NOT get suspicious when he could never see an image of her when they were talking on the computer (skiping?), then he is not very "sharp".
T'eo, Lance, Barry Bonds, etc., etc. Narcissism and our love of heroic stories trumps the truth. And our "heroes" oblige us. And the sports media loves to feed our obsessions. Thus it will ever be.
These hoaxes happen on line all the time. MTV has a show about this subject. They will never run out of subjects. Some people have nothing better to do than disrupt lives when they are sitting at the computer. Three people came forward and admitted what they did. I'm sure they are looking for attention now. That's what our world is now, look at me, see what I did, I'm so clever. It's the football players life. Leave him alone. His trust in people is already destroyed.
Notre Dame can join Penn State now in the sin of hubris. Football is not
more important than honesty and character.
